The VX-2 is a concept vehicle embodying one vision of now ISUZU’s SUV technology will be looking in the near future. This model cleary conveys a sporty image as well as spartan proportions.
A stunning 4x4 concept car - which combines the technical look of a motorcycle with the hard-edged aggression of Japanese body armour. Despite its Oriental overtones, the Isuzu VX2 sports coupe project was led by Englishman, Simon Cox who was also responsible for the earlier Vehi-CROSS - equally radical and now on sale in Japan.

The thought-provoking exhibit will join many other show cars in a special exhibition hall dedicated to: "Concept Cars Of The 21st Century." It was first seen at last year’s 32nd Tokyo Motor Show.

Isuzu’s VX2 appears capable of winning the Paris to Dakar Rally, with similar air intakes and outlets to the off-road competition cars and a rugged, go-anywhere stance.

Its styling is dominated by large 18ins diameter wheels with 255/60 tyres inspired by training shoes, especially short overhangs, high ground clearance and compact body proportions with a much lower roof height than conventional 4x4s.

Large, vertical headlamps sweep up into the front wings which form a muscular definition to the front of the car.

The windscreen is steeply angled and meets a T-bar targa roof arrangement with a triangular spine which also acts as an air vent for the interior. Elsewhere, hard angles are contrasted with soft curves.



Isuzu. VX-2. Компания в последнее время увлекается концептами, последний из них – VX-2, четырехместный автомобиль для отдыха.

Независимая подвеска всех колес с большим количеством алюминиевых деталей, мощные амортизаторы, 18-дюймовая резина на алюминиевых дисках, 3,2 л V6 двигатель – такой же, как на Isuzu Rodeo и новом Amigo и, конечно же, полный привод.

Плюс к этому – короткая база, короткие же передний и задний свесы, длинноходная подвеска – понятно, почему машина оснащена спортивными четырехточечными ремнями.

А футуристичность облику VX-2 придает цветной видеомонитор, заменивший зеркало заднего вида. На него же выводятся и данные со спутниковой навигационной системы.
